Annual General Meeting 2021

Dividend announcement

WKN 703712
ISIN DE 0007037129

The ordinary Annual General Meeting on 28 April 2021 resolved to distribute the distributable profit for fiscal 2020 of RWE Aktiengesellschaft in the amount of EUR 574.812.261,27 as follows:

Payment of a dividend of € 0.85
per dividend-bearing share: 

 € 574,787,040.80
Profit carryforward:    € 25,220.47


The dividend will be paid out on 3 May 2021 by Clearstream Banking AG, Frankfurt/Main, via the depositary banks with deduction of 25 % for capital gains tax and 5.5 % for solidarity surcharge on capital gains tax (all together 26.375 %) and (if applicable) church tax.

The deduction of the capital gains tax and the solidarity surcharge will not be applicable to shareholders who have filed a "non-assessment certificate" ("Nicht-Veranlagungsbescheinigung") issued by their local tax office with their depositary bank. The same applies in full or in part to shareholders who have filed an "application for tax exemption" ("Freistellungsauftrag") with their depositary bank, provided that the exemption volume in their application has not already been used up by other income from capital assets.

In the case of non-tax resident shareholders the withheld capital gains tax including solidarity surcharge can be reduced as specified by existing agreements concluded between the Federal Republic of Germany and the respective country to avoid double taxation. Any reimbursements are made by the Federal Central Tax Office (Bundeszentralamt für Steuern) on submission of an application.
